meteocontrol GmbH, a PV service provider for monitoring, and 3megawatt GmbH, a solar asset management software provider, plan to intensify their working relationship in the future. The partnership will focus on developing an all-in-one full featured solution to manage large photovoltaic system portfolios. Both companies will create a seamless interface of their platforms, which will offer their clients a complete end-to-end solution.
Joint clients are already benefiting from the automated import of plant data from meteocontrol’s monitoring system into the 3megawatt’s asset management platform BluePoint. “This data integration offers great advantages for our clients,” said Edmee Kelsey, CEO of 3megawatt. “One of the advantages is that clients are able to automatically create energy invoices using solar industry best practice workflows and to verify time of day utility or export PPA statements using ‘shadow billing’.” This is a big time saver, which enables clients to operate large portfolios much more efficiently and cost effectively.
The aim of the close partnership is to simply and quickly integrate the monitoring systems safer’Sun, VCOM virtual control room and SCADA into the BluePoint platform. “We want to create the highest level of compatibility so that we can provide our customers with the most comprehensive services and have the right solution on hand for every portfolio,” said Martin Schneider, Managing Director of meteocontrol. With its monitoring solutions, meteocontrol is one of the leading providers in the photovoltaic industry: The PV specialist monitors around 39,500 PV systems around the globe with a total power of over 10.5 GWp. The close partnership with 3megawatt represents another key milestone for the company.
